    USB dock for testing M.2 NVMe/2.5" SATA

    PiKVM v3.0 / BLiKVM v2.2 "build"

    Thanks for this. It's just too bad that it's nearly impossible to find any variant of the RPi4 without a ridiculous markup

    Thoughts on T-Mobile 5G Internet?

    Slightly off topic, but I use Verizon 5G Home internet service. Save for a period of a month and a half where they screwed something up on their end and I would lose connection for 5-10 seconds multiple times a day, I've been happy. Below is a speedtest I just ran (upload is usually higher, in...

    Help choosing QSFP switch

    Do you have the 40GbE QSFP expansion modules on each of the existing N4064's? If not, you could add those to get the additional 4 QSFP ports that you are looking for. As for stacking additional switches, I don't know that you can stack with anything outside the N4000 series, so you would need...

    AOC-STGN-I2S (x520) - dual sfp+

    Considering that ESXi 7.0 is supported until end of Q1 2025, I don't think most homelab users should be too worried. We know we are buying generations old hardware.

    How do you determine which physical network port software is referring to?

    I just ran into this yesterday while trying to troubleshoot something in my setup. On my Brocade ICX6450 I disabled one port at a time and checked the hypervisor to see which one showed as link down. Turns out they were exactly like I expected, but at least I was 100% sure after that.

    EXSi: HowTo Deactivate SVGA for Passthrough to Linux-Guest

    Ok, that is not a configuration that I am familiar with. I don't have a GPU on my 7U3 system, or I'd test out. If I get a chance I can test it on my 6.7 host and see if the same behavior occurs there.

    EXSi: HowTo Deactivate SVGA for Passthrough to Linux-Guest

    Ok, I should have asked if you were trying to do GPU passthrough or just a headless server. But I'm a little confused; are you passing the GPU to the Linux VM or to the Windows VM?

    EXSi: HowTo Deactivate SVGA for Passthrough to Linux-Guest

    I just set up a new VM on ESXi 7U3 (I would think 7U2 should be the same) and svga.present=FALSE works fine for me. svga.present=FALSE 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX Host bridge (rev 01) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX AGP...

    TrueNAS SMB Share - files show a different group under Ubuntu (root) vs (myusername) under Windows and TrueNAS

    Do you have uid=1000, gid=1000 set as options in your /etc/fstab mount? That is how I get Linux clients to mount with the correct user/group

    I think I screwed up. Help with Infiniband setup

    Which drivers have you tried? According to the driver compatibility matrix at Mellanox WinOF-2: Firmware - Driver Compatibility Matrix the ConnectX-IB is not compatible with the Windows drivers. I might suggest a ConnectX-[34567]
